The effectiveness of heat recovery systems

Exodraft A/S primarily manufactures and sells chimney solutions to control chimney draught. And also to recover unused energy from gases and process air. And Exodraft uses test equipment to show potential customers the effect of their heat recovery system. However, they were faced with the issue that they couldn’t remotely monitorize the effect and runtime of their test equipment. We are helping them by documenting the effectiveness of heat recovery systems.

How does Trendlog.io benefit Exodraft?

Using the trendlog.io solution, they are able to visualize what their customers would save by using their heat recovery systems. By integrating trendlog.io into their own equipment, they are able to remotely monitorize data throughout the process.

The trendlog.io platform allows Exodraft to track the ongoing development in recovering unsued energy and to show their customers the effect of their solution. 

Trendlog.io brings Exodraft closer to the customer by providing insights into the value of their heat recovery system. Automatically generated reports also allow Exodraft to document a more specific development to the customer.

Setup

Exodraft uses trendlog.io to document the effect of their heat recovery system. To help document the effect, they have constructed their own test boxes. They consist of thermocouples as sensors, an I/O Module to convert the data and our Data Forwarder to collect all data and send it to our Cloud. The data is sent via an SSL encrypted connection to secure all collected data.

When the data is stored in our Cloud Solution we can visualize it via our online platform on computers, tablets, smartphones and info screens . This requires user/password access. It allows Exodraft to monitor the effect during the test period and gives them assurance that their equipment is running throughout the period.

The online platform also contains a few features, among others, a reporting system that helps Exodraft provide documentation for their test boxes.

When a certain development in specific data requires explanation, you can attach a comment to a certain point on a graph. Then it will become visible to all users with access. They granted access by the platform administrator within the company.
